Orgone
Orgone
Orgōne (Or-gōne). Noun. 1. A universal life force. 2. A cosmic unit of energy, the creative force in nature. 3. A soul music juggernaut with 8 heads and one heart.

Now and always, Orgōne delivers dirty, organic, California soul with heart; music that grabs you by the collar, pulls you to your feet and shoves you wantingly onto the dance floor. It all started with two kids from the San Fernando Valley, whose shared affinity for gritty soul records of the 60s and 70s collided with the colorful music cultures brewing in Los Angeles during the late 90s. That friendship sparked a movement, and Orgōne has been delivering nothing but gold to the funk faithful ever since.

“We intend our music to have an inhibition-canceling effect,” founding guitarist Sergio Rios explains. “It speaks to those who may have wallflower tendencies encouraging everyone to own the freakiness that lives inside them, and enjoy the spotlight for a little while. Sometimes it takes a nudge to let go and get on the dance floor. And sometimes it takes a big 'ol push... a love shove, if you will. And we're well versed in those."

Fearless vocalist Adryon de León elevates the octets soulfulness to intoxicating new levels on Orgone's latest studio album, Beyond The Sun. Dubbed "stank face inducing glory" by Okayplayer, the record is a lightning rod of inspiration for a new generation of funk music lovers. Following the 45 release in April of “I Sold My Heart to the Junkman” featuring Cyril Neville, Orgone plans to drip steamy new singles one by one into the world throughout 2017.
Big Blue Ox
Big Blue Ox
Big Blue Ox is an explosive funk juggernaut from Salt Lake City, Utah. Throwing down head bangin' grooves and blistering horn lines, this band is sure to elevate the mind and move the booty. Big Blue Ox recently released their self-titled EP, featuring some of the group’s most groundbreaking work.

The band’s core members, George Simon, Mason Petersen, and Wachira Waigwa-Stone, founded the first incarnation of Big Blue Ox while attending the School of Music at the University of Utah in 2009. After a hiatus, the band reformed in 2015 with an all-star lineup, including a 3-part horn section, analog synthesizers, and world percussion. Be sure to catch Big Blue Ox at a festival or venue near you and stay tuned for full album release dropping next year.
